Description Sizing Shipping Information
A Rudis was a gift to a gladiator for a special achievement. This signified his release from a slave to a freeman. Our Rudis is an excellent and unique give for someone who has completed service in the military, retired, or completed an academic achievement.

Made in the USA, This is our upgrade rudis. Historically they had an ivory handle. We don't do ivory, but we left the handle with a finished white wooden handle for a beautiful contrast. The handle is not octagon for a very historic look.

Rudis can be engraved with corporate logo, military insignia and/or text in many different fonts. We have done Greek Paddles, like Alpha Epsilon Pi and others. One set was for a group of bestmen for a wedding. See below for engraving examples of our extensive military insignia catalog or on facebook.

Excellent gift November 10, 2016
Reviewer: LT T. Corrigan from USAG Yongsan, Seoul, KOREA  
Our SMSgt was retiring and PurpleHeart Armory was able to make, engrave and ship the Rudis overseas in less than 2 weeks.  Great gift, well made and the support and response was top notch.  Very happy with the purchase.

Excellent product / Outstanding Customer Service August 25, 2016
Reviewer: Steven M. from Fredericksburg, VA United States  
Christian and his team went above and beyond in creating a superb gift for a 1-star U.S. Navy Admiral who recently departed our command. Not only was the finished product better than we expected, the customer support was second to none as evident by their quick response when UPS screwed up the delivery. I highly recommend woodenswords.com. We will be utilizing their services in the future.
